Vina Chile is an avant-garde retreat and wine spa designed by the ever successful Alexander and Carrie Vik. This cutting edge contemporary cabin overlooks the vineyard below and offers guests a cultural wine experience amidst 11,000 acres of nature.
22 rooms make up the retreat and no two are alike. Each suite has its own quaint name, furniture handpicked by the Vik's themselves, art from both Chilean and International artists and great views out over the Falaris-Colchagua Valley's vineyards, mountains and lake.
Guests dine at the Milla Milla restaurant where the chef creates Chilean specialties using ingredients grown in the surrounding areas by local farmers. Facilities also include a living room to enjoy panoramic views of the valley, fitness centre, yoga room, swimming pool and wine spa.
After a spot of wine tasting and a tour of the vineyard there's an array of activities in and around the resort to enjoy including walking trails ranging in difficulty, bike riding, horse riding and bird watching. After, return back to the vineyard for another tipple and a spot of star gazing.
The vineyard is aptly named 'Vina Vik Millahue' and, in the language of the local Mapuche people, 'Millahue' means 'the place of gold'. They were referring to actual gold, but we'd consider the wine being produced here to be liquid gold too.
